We've been coming to Puerto Vallarta for nearly 2 decades, but never thought about doing a food tour until this time.

We took the "Original Downtown Tour" and it was a highlight of our trip to Puerto Vallarta. The tour included nine tastings. The tastings included a great variety: tacos from a traditional taco stand, acqua fresca, a tortilla factory tour, ceviche mahi-mahi, Tuba water, and mexican candies. Our tour guide, Ann Marie, was five star. She shared interesting information not... More

This tour was worth every peso! Amanda was a great guide, and shared so much history and culture, while leading us to authentic food stops that we could have never discovered on our own. There is a LOT of food on this tour, so don't have breakfast. We want to try an evening tour next time.

Excellent tour lasting about 4 hours. Great value for money. Sampled lots of local food and drinks from combination of street vendors and more established restaurants. Our guide Amanda pointed out historic sites and key shops owned by locals. She spoke flawless English with a good sense of humor. Most important part of tour was to be comfortable eating at... More

I took the "Original Downtown Tour" and was pleasantly surprised at how INCREDIBLY AMAZING the tour was. The food was incredible and, even as a local, I got to know some new and great places I didn't know before. It is DEFINITELY one of the best activities to do in Puerto Vallarta, especially if you're looking for an AUTHENTIC and... More

On a short getaway to PV with my husband and a couple of friends, we booked the Taco Tour for our first night. It was an excellent way to get acclimated to the city and learn about some awesome food spots. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable, and the food was insanely good. I highly recommend this tour, and I'm... More

Our guide Ana Maria was fabulous. We wanted to take her to dinner and just talk to her about all of her experiences. She was friendly with everyone, knew so many proprietors, had great tips, stories, and made the tour 5 stars. Added a couple extra stops, went for 5 hours. We were tired and so full but totally enjoyed... More

Six of us did the evening taco tour with Manuel. He takes you to 8 stops along the way, where you taste several different tacos, mezcal, pozole. He was so knowledgeable and every single stop was so delicious! If you are looking to see some of the city and learn about the food/taco scene, this tour is awesome. Our guide,... More
